COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
"Vintage 2005"
Our PGR has aged for 24 months on oak barrels and has been bottled for the first time on the 27th of December 2007. The main difference with the Pannepot Reserva is that PGR matured the last ten months on Calvados oak barrels, adding extra complexity to the beer. We dedicate this beer as a tribute to Jeppe & Michael of lbutikken in Denmark. Those gentlemen were the first to discover our beers on an International basis back in 2004 and are responsable somehow for our beers being all over the globe since then. As a token of gratitude towards Jeppe & Michael, the first shipment of PGR was scheduled to lbutikken so they could be the first to launch its commercialisation.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - DEC 8, 2011
Vintage 2005. The pour is a deep, dark red color, nearly black with a fairly small, frothy, tan head which settles to a very thin froth throughout and leaves similar lace. The nose is like a fruit explosion; blueberry, plum skins, figs, dark chocolate cake, light cinnamon, vanilla custard, some toasted caramel, and faint notes of pecan. The flavor is immaculate, balancing malt richness and depth melding with balance; still rich chocolate cake, light fudge, plum skins and blueberry, toasted caramel and pecan, faint vanilla in there, before a nice floral and coffee bitterness balances with some toasted oak rounding the flavor. The palate is nice with a full body, nearly lively carbonation, and a round, velvety mouthfeel. The beer finishes in a long progression with rich cake and fudge slowly giving way to the toasted oak, coffee bitterness, and still blueberry lingering throughout. This one just took a great beer and made it much better; age and oak rounds out the flavors, the complexity only grows more, and the richness is still there with a perfect balance. I could drink this all night even for a rich and complex beer. Not sure how this one could be any better, seriously.

DYCSoccer17 (3683) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 5, 2011
2005 Vintage bottle purchased at L in Walnut Creek, CA. There is an initially faint aroma with light fruitiness and a little vanilla presence. Underlying cocoa notes are also there. Nicely quaffable. Mildly hazy amber body with a small light tan head. Chocolate flavors are present to start, with nice sweetness followed by some pitted fruits like raisins and dates. This finishes with roastiness and some mineral character. Very smooth and easy-drinking. This is a very dangerous beer. Again, like the Reserva, this beer does not have a ton of barrel character, but that doesnt hurt it.

Bottle pours brown-black with thin tan head that fades fairly quickly. Aroma of oak, dark fruits, musty. Taste dark fruits with a bit of chocolate, quite a bit of oak, vinous notes, raisins, spices. Full slightly carbonated palate. Alcohol well disguised. Finish oak, slight hops and fruit.

Didnt like it as much as the regular Pannepot but still a very nice beer. For me the oak detracted instead of enhanced.

pushkinwow (2755) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 30, 2011
33cl bottle from Cava in Saskatoon, 2005. Dark mahogny with a thin tan head. First thought on the aroma is mmmmmmmm, sort of a combination of red wine and bourbon. Oak, vanilla, musk and grapes, toffee, figs, rains, belgian malt backbone and caramelized brown sugar. Bit metallic/oxidization at first, disappears after it has a chance to breath, smooth, slightly tart and bitter, underlying sweetness that balances things out, full bodied, nice carbonation, alcohol is present, only really lets you down on the ending - you get some malt, fruit and oak.

2005 vintage. Pours a one-finger light brown head that fades quickly leaving some lace. Black color, no highlights, ton of yeast left in bottle. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Dark fruit and alcohol nose and flavor is also alcohol, dark fruit and some oak, mellow sweetness. Very similar to Pannepot Reserva. Expensive at $11.49 for a 330ml (label claims this is a 750ml, I guess they ran out of 330ml labels) bottle from Julios Liquors Westborough, Ma.

shared at the 6th annual Richmond Industry Gathering, 11/27/11. Nice end to this tasting. Dark reddish brown color with a thin creamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of bready malts, spice, honey, cinnamon and faint citrus. The taste is bread, spice, brown sugar and peppery hops. Medium-full bodied. Nice.

timfoolery (1126) - California, USA - NOV 27, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2012 Bottle from OL in Walnut Creek. Aroma is of dark fruit, mainly sweet figs. This beer is almost like drinking a gourmet Fig Newton. Its got a full, sweet flavor of Rainier cherries and, of course, figs. Excellent palate and finish. Excellent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
